Ellen opened up about that sad period in her life on David Letterman’s talk show two weeks ago. Earlier, DeGeneres already mentioned about this sad experience but never gave any details.

Ellen told Letterman that her decision to speak out is based on her desire to protect other girls from a similar situation.

She said with tears in her eyes:

I live with that regret, and I wouldn’t want that for any other parent. If someone in your life has the courage to speak out, please believe them.
